Graphic Medicine explores an increasingly popular, yet little-known literary field that presents personal stories of illness and health through the medium of comics. The exhibition will showcase items from the National Library of Medicine’s growing collection of graphic memoirs depicting people’s experiences with an array of health issues, including breast cancer, deafness, mental illness, HIV/AIDS, and more.
This exhibition was produced by the US National Library of Medicine.
